Non-emergency services provided by an out-of-state provider require prior approval for coverage under the Blue Care benefit plan. If a Network Provider thinks non-emergency (elective) services are needed from a provider located outside of Mississippi, that Network Provider will need to pre-certify those services for network benefits to be provided. Our Health and Wellness Team can assist the Network Provider in determining if the services needed can be provided in Mississippi.
Our Network Providers can help you get the most out of your health and wellness benefits. You can see the many healthcare providers in Network Provider Search.
